FileWriteFromArray confusion

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

When I open my text file and sort the contents it adds the total number of items at the end of the text file which I do not want. What am I doing wrong to cause that? I assume it is somethign in my _FileWriteFromArray bit.

$file = "test.txt"
If Not _FileReadToArray($file ,$aRecords) Then
    MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array    error:" & @error)
Exit
EndIf

FileClose($file)
                
$file = FileOpen("test.txt", 2)
    _ArraySort($aRecords)
    _FileWriteFromArray($file, $aRecords, 1)
FileClose($file)

Edit: Accidentally submitted bost before I finished writing it. Woopsie-doodle!

muncherw,

_FileReadToArray sets the [0] element to the number of items read in from the file. From the ever useful Help file: "$aArray[0] will contain the number of records read into the array.". So when you sort, that number is obviously ending at the bottom of your sorted array because of the sort parameters you are using.

Solution: delete the [0] element with _ArrayDelete before sorting!

Thanks for educating me on how _FileReadToArray works and for cluing me into _ArrayDelete. Much appreciated!
